1 – Opportunities from February are in front of you once more, causing you to look at how you are expressing yourself. Do you feel freedom to reach out and let the world know you are ready for the good that is yours? Are you enjoying your life and appreciating all that is, or are you caught in an emotional roller coaster? Light and shadow provide contrast so that you can define more clearly how you want to proceed, and what you bring to the world. Instead of being buffeted by whims of the moment, concentrate on creating more beauty through your gifts and talents – then everyone wins!
2 – Overcoming tension through building a strong foundation is important. During the month, look at where the context of your life has become too narrow or small. What fits, and what has outworn its value? Where are you allowing old habit patterns or fear of moving ahead to stop you? Take that next step. Risk to the unknown. Believe in yourself and reconstruct where necessary. This month provides opportunities for transformation. Only you can become the butterfly, so spread those beautiful wings and fly!
3 – Change is in the air. Expand horizons, and appreciate diversity – but be aware that there are only 24 hours in a day – so give yourself appropriate time to accomplish goals and get necessary sleep. You may be called on unexpectedly, have guests arrive without notice, or shift directions due to unforeseen situations. It’s a good time for meeting new people, traveling, and engaging in multiple activities. Read the fine print on contracts, and beware of scam artists. Service your automobile, and pay attention to where you are walking. Other than that – have a terrific month, and enjoy!
4 – Family and friends are important. Your sense of wellbeing and position in the community is also of concern. Where are you extending yourself with joy in the giving, and where are you performing out of a sense of obligation or duty? Attitude makes all the difference and will determine whether you feel resentful or at peace. If you find yourself constantly in the role of “fix it” person, it’s time to allow others to be more responsible for themselves. In matters of health, take care of you. When you feel the cup is half full rather than half empty, appreciation abounds, and wellbeing is enhanced through the light of your love.
5. The focus is on your inner connection to Source. In a hectic year, the tendency is to continue to run “out there”, but in November you are asked to go within.
There may be a special project that requires attention, or someone from the past with whom you have need to resolve a relationship. You might even have situations arise that feel unsettling – but the focus is on gaining greater insight into the meaning of your life. Take time to be still – to reflect in Spirit – to be with nature – to contemplate or read meaningful works that bring you closer to your sense of Oneness.
6 – Balance in all things is the desired goal and purpose. Find a point of equilibrium so that you are not buffeted by moments of seeming greatness or failure. As you deal with life on a basis of equanimity, you are empowered. Striving is not the required action; flowing is. See yourself as a system of energy, and find the tone that brings more harmony into your life. The stream of life is not meant to be a battle, but something upon which we can ride – enjoying the view and stopping along the way to smell the flowers. Effort is effortless when you direct the process, not try to do it all yourself. Appreciate and be appreciated…the lovely dance of give and take, spiraling toward the center where poise resides.
7 – What is no longer necessary in your life? What attitudes, items, viewpoints, or acquaintances have outlived their purpose? Letting go allows room to be made for the new. The more you clutch limitation, the more you block your good, and find yourself protecting things that died a long time ago. Now is the time to walk to the top of the metaphorical mountain and gain a larger perspective. Release attachment, and allow Source to supply your needs. Through gratitude, everything comes, and then you can be a light bearer to others. Whenever there is a need, “seek ye first the kingdom. Then all things shall be added unto you.”
8 – A powerful month of looking at your own individuality and the leadership position you are given or need to assume. This is a time to stand up for your beliefs, to bring your voice forward, and to forge ahead. Powerful allies can be of assistance, and the time is right to plant new seeds. Develop connections, and step out of your comfort zone. As you forge your identity more clearly in Spirit, the best of you comes to the fore. Then you become an important part of the solution in making a difference to the quality of life.
9 –The Divine Feminine is knocking. As you prepare yourself to be receptive to insights and subtleties, you can feel, hear, or see images that need to be translated into something understandable to others. When you are ill prepared for awakening, you may feel a shock to your system. Make no mistake – there is something important that is seeking your attention, and you are asked to separate truth from illusion. Quality of choice is very important now. Choose that which nourishes, supports, and uplifts. Anything that defiles or condemns is to be weeded out. It has no function other than to destroy, and this month is about the emergence of she…Emergence-She!
